Product Review

The Cisco WS-C3650-48PS-S switch offers a solid feature set with 48 10/100/1000 Ethernet PoE+ ports and four 1G uplink ports, accommodating a variety of devices and uplink strategies. However, its power supply is limited to 640 WAC, which may not suffice for all 48 ports under full PoE+ load, potentially requiring careful planning of power allocation. With a switching capacity of 176 Gbps and stacking bandwidth of 160 Gbps, it supports high-speed data processing and efficient stack integration, but its IP Base feature set might limit advanced routing capabilities for some network designs.
